A novel by


"Iain Rob Wright scares the hell out of me!" - J.A. Konrath.

Mankind's extinction is about to begin...

When bizarre, immovable black stones appear across the globe, the world's best scientists are baffled. Where did they come from? What is their purpose? Are they dangerous?

When the stones begin to 'wake up,' the answers are worse than anyone ever imagined.

As global anarchy erupts, US Coast Guard Guy Granger sets off on a desperate journey across the Atlantic to find his children. Elsewhere, Mina Magar is a journalist forced to photograph horrors she can barely believe, while fading pop star Rick Bastion is forced to fight for his survival despite wishing he was dead. When the enemy finally reveals itself, all seems lost.

An apocalyptic saga inspired by such works as Stephen King's the Stand, Brian Keene's the Rising, and Max Brook's World War Z. You'll never see where the story is heading next, so hold on and enjoy the ride.
